So my 10 year old son makes his middle school jazz band playing bass. Yes, I'm proud. He's using my SWR Workingman 10 and it's working pretty well but it just doesn't have enough volume. He says he's having to run the volume on 6-8 to keep up with the band. It's starting to break up some. I'm looking for a used amp that would represent the next level for him with enough power to keep up without pushing so hard. Here is the question... My local guitar store has a Behringer BX1200 for a hundred and twenty bucks. Is this a step up? Question 2. If not the Behringer, what amp in the the sub-$250 range would you recommend that would be a significant step up from the WM10?
